spawning a shell under octave

Hi all,

I have successfully installed Octave 2.1.42 under Windows 2000. I'd like to use the epsTk library in conjunction with Ghostscript 8.1, and Adobe acrobat reader to view plots.

I've written a batch file to take the ".eps" outputs from the epsTk library, convert them to pdf using ghostscript, and load the resulting pdf into acrobat reader... However, it's many years since i've used matlab / octave and i can't remember if it's possible to spawn an external shell from an m script.

Any ideas whether it's (a) possible and (b) how to do it?
